Two Better Than One

Ecclesiastes 4:7- I observed yet another example of something meaningless under the sun. (New Living Translation)

Voices Against the Grain Devotional Writer

When we’re alone our minds run adrift. When we’re alone our thoughts begin to multiply. When we’re alone we seek comfort in an effort to quell the echoes that ricochet within our heads. For our thoughts of being single excite us, but the reality of lying awake to the voice of nature depresses us. Our determination to succeed fuels us, but the reality of partaking in the God-given spoils by ourselves, depletes us. Our ability to witness for Christ is met with no hindrances, but after we have given our hearts, bodies, and souls to the cause of Christ, who will be there to restore the proverbial electrolytes we have lost during the journey? Therefore, let us ask a question ‘cuz if we obtain every dream, and accomplish every goal, and complete every mission in life, who will you have throwing a celebratory party for you? It’s this question that’ll lead you to uncovering the recipe for true happiness. Amen
